Fetus’ have feelings… as we can see in Luke 1:44, John the Baptist leaped for joy when he heard Mary’s voice. During an abortion, it is true that the fetus can feel the pain and reacts to the danger. The silent scream is where a baby is being killed, and the child expresses unspeakable terror just moments before being killed. Since the Silent Scream is a subject all in itself, I am going to point you to a Web site, where they go into much more detail on the Silent Scream, and even show a video of an abortion in action where you can clearly see the Silent Scream taking place… a word of warning, this film is very graphic and not recommended for children to view! After all, abortion is not a pretty scene, and is nothing short of gruesome murder of an innocent and helpless child! Click on the link below for more information on The Silent Scream:
Abortion’s aftermath is proof alone that abortion is indeed spiritual! Jesus made it clear that murder is a source of spiritual defilement:
Matthew 15:18-20, “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man…”
Some women may not seem to be tormented so badly by abortion’s aftermath, but that is if their conscience has been sheered as by a hot branding iron:
1 Timothy 4:2, “Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.”
Satan is not a dummy when it comes to deceiving the world (isn’t he known for his clever deception?). There are some women who experience little or no torment after having abortions, but I believe they are simply ‘spared’ as to deceive the rest of us that it’s okay to have abortions and not all women will be tormented afterwards. Wouldn’t it make sense if Satan keeps 3% of those women who have abortions to be examples of how not all women are tormented after having an abortion, so that they could tell the rest of us how they have not been negatively affected by their abortion? Don’t fall for Satan’s clever deception.
If a fetus (unborn child) was simply a mass of tissue, then it would be impossible for any woman who believes such a lie to experience such awful mental torment and shame after having an abortion.
The truth is, abortion is a source for enormous spiritual and mental bondage and torment. It is a means for spiritual defilement, just as cold-blooded murder is, and opens a person up to unclean spirits (demons) to enter and harass the person. Studies have shown that abortion is also linked to suicide because of such torment and bondage… many women feel it’s better that they weren’t even born if they have to face such torment. Nobody knows what it’s like to be in bondage, until they are the ones facing it in their own lives, and the sad truth is that many women today don’t realize what they are getting themselves into until it is too late, and the damage is already done.
Women who have had abortions are almost always said to experience some or many of the following symptoms:
– Bondage to shame and guilt
– Nightmares relating to the abortion
– Feeling that God would never forgive them
– Depression which can lead to suicide (Studies show that abortion is linked to suicide)
– Self-hatred for allowing themselves to do such a thing
– Sleep disorders – finding it hard to get to sleep at night
– Flashbacks and even hearing sounds of children crying
– Desire to have another baby to replace the aborted baby
– Inability to form a true loving bond with her other children
– And many many more…
The list of side affects from an abortion are long. Jesus made it clear that murder is a means for defilement, and defilement is an open door to unclean spirits to come in and play havoc in a person’s life. I believe behind almost every (if not every) case of suicide, is a spirit… a demon that drives the person to take their own life to end the pain they are facing. People who have came close to suicide will often admit that there was a force that was ‘driving’ them to take their own life. It often tells them that they could end all of their problems by pulling the plug.
